Are you tired of LFR?
Do you want to learn how to join an organized raid team?
Then look no further!
This ongoing weekly event will be open for those that haven’t raided before, have raided a little or are changing roles. This is a hands on learning opportunity where we will provide you the instruction and opportunity to down some of the toughest bosses in Draenor.
We will be raiding Tuesday nights from 5:30 - 7:30 Server Time.
Since Normal is flexible our numbers may vary from week to week. We will need a minimum of 10 players and correct raid composition.
It is our goal that before you leave this series of events that you have received the following:
- An overall understanding of what being in a raid team means
- General understanding of your role and what is expected of it in a raid
- That you feel ready to join an established raid team
- A clear understanding of how to join a raid team
What is expected of you:
- Level 100
- Item Level 650 or higher
- Completed Silver Proving grounds for your role on the character you will be bringing
- Basic Knowledge of the fights - Line Of Sight 2 minute videos or LFR
- CTR Mumble Access - A microphone is preferred but not required
- Flasks and Potions for your character
- Ability to take constructive criticism
- Desire to learn

We will start the invites 20-30 minutes before the start time. Please be logged into the toon that you are looking to bring by that time.
We will invite people that sign up on the website first then filling through ctrlfg, if needed.
** Please be sure to sign up with the toon name you are going to bring, including any special characters and selecting what role you intend to play. **
See you there, Raiders!
Q: Is this a set period of time?
A: The group will keep meeting as long as there is interest. However, each individual will have a varied amount of time that they feel they will need to join us.
Q: What would happen if I missed a week or couldn’t make it?
A: Attendance each week isn’t required, a minimum raid team is needed so we ask that interested players show up on the website to make sure that we have the correct group of players to go. The more time you spend getting used to raiding the more you will feel comfortable moving on to an organized group.
Q: Am I signing up for the series or just whenever I can make it?
A: I think this goes back into the attendance question. We are going to keep meeting to give everyone a chance to learn, so if you would like to stay with us for 7 weeks but someone else feels comfortable to move on after 5 weeks that is dependent on them as an individual.
Q: What was expected of me in time commitment if I were signing up for this - how many weeks in a row would I need to do to “graduate”?
A: In addition of the 2 hours of raid time, raiders may spend additional time researching for their Class/Spec. There is not a set number of weeks that you will need to complete to move on. This is going to be based on how you feel and your comfort level.
Q: Are you offering specific role coaching?
A: The goal is to provide everyone a base of general information about raiding. Detailed breakdowns of each class and specs will not be provided.
Q: Will someone go over my logs with me and tell me how I’m doing in comparison to others?
A: We will discuss how to pull up and access logs however a detailed discussion about the logs is outside the scope of this current event.
Q: Are we going to move up in difficulty if/when we clear the raid?
A: The focus of this group is to introduce players to an organized raiding environment, to keep that obtainable we will keep our raid difficulty to Normal only.
Q: Am I going to be tested?
A: The hands on environment will act as a test, of sorts. Since we will be completing boss fights each person will be able to evaluate if they are doing what is needed to complete the goal at hand. We are willing to discuss each participates progress with them, however we will not be making the final decision. only you can make the right choice.
